polls, you follow people and money, bill clinton was campaigning in minnesota yesterday. do you think that the obama campaign is worried about these states? >> i would say that i would get worried or i think maybe increase the level of concern about these potential battle grounds if you saw the principals going there. the most precious resource that a campaign is the candidate's time because that's finite with only six or so days left. if you send surrogates like bill clinton to minimnesota, you don really lose anything by doing that. it's kind of a plus plus. so i think it's a smart strategy. if i see more polls coming out of minnesota or michigan or pennsylvania showing this a close race and showing the president's numbers down to 48 or 47, then i'll get concerned. up until that happens, i'm not going to be that concerned about those states. >> so if romney is concerned then we would see romney making a stop in those states? >> he's partially right but he's also spending money there. they're not going to spend money after bad. if the poll numbers are as close as you put up on the sc

hurricane relief events in ohio and wisconsin. bill clinton continues campaigning for team obama. he'll be in minnesota and colorado while the president focuses on disaster response from the white house. >> the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure that we are saving lives. >> i want to bring in perry bacon and lynn sweet, washington bureau chief for "the chicago sun-times." good morning. >> good morning. >> every word is being used for a political priss sxm thm and t not lost on david axelrod. >> we're obviously going to lose a bunch of campaign time, but that's what has to be and we'll try to make it up on the back end. so for us, it's not a matter of optics. it's a matter of a responsibility and governor romney can decide for himself what he wants to do. >> having said that, lynn, you cannot ignore the calendar. we're a week from election day. what are the stakes for this election? >> well, the highest, if it disrupts early voting and absentee balloting that each of the campaigns that counted on in the early states. it a

communications director for president bill clinton and former senior adviser to hillary clinton's campaign. always good to see you, ann. good morning. >> good morning. >> with the president pulled off the campaign trail because of hurricane sandy, do you think it makes president clinton's presence even more crucial? >> it demonstrates bill clinton's value in this campaign. he's both the surrogate to get out there, maintain the level of excitement that you really want to keep your get out the vote program going, and at the same time and just as important he makes this substantive case for why barack obama deserves to be re-elected. i've done a lot of campaigns and done a lot of surrogate work. it is unusual to have a surrogate who has this level of stature and brings the excitement, too. >> which may be why the republicans frankly are trying to make something negative of all of bill clinton's appearances. senator mccain says a lot of this has to do with hillary clinton maybe running in 2016. the rnc put out a press release today full of quotes saying that democrats are worried that clinton

president obama, not just for some of the events he's had here. bill clinton was here yesterday. but the coverage of sandy has been positive for the president. even on local television, as i had mentioned, the coverage is relative lly positive for president obama. >> thanks to both of you who have been on the ground in ohio. back to the final jobs report, let's talk about that. the economy adding a better than expected 171,000 jobs in october. but the unemployment rate kicked up to 7.9%. some of the president's core voting groups still have a double unemployment rate, the african-american voting race. greg, if u.s. economic senator for the economist, jim, let me start with you been what's your take away from this report? what does it tell us about the status of the jobs market? >> well, it tells us that the jobs market is getting better. it's not getting better nearly fast enough for the 12 million merps who want to find work but can't. but the pace of the recovery appears to be picking up. this is good news. we're seeing increases in the creation rate for private sector employment.

states trying to get the message for him. bill clinton is continues with the florida event. president obama probably made the right call to come back. it wouldn't look good if he continued with that event down in florida if people are pounded by rain. all attention will be on this storm for a while, especially on the east coast, so he has a chance to get out there and be in front of the cam ras. we don't want to talk aboutfall politics in a natural disaster, but it will give him a chance to respond and look presidential. >> mitt romney had to cancel three events in virginia. the latest poll out of the state. he's closing the gap, although the president still has a four-point lead. how do you proceed if you're mitt romney? he doesn't have an official role, so is whatever he does open to criticism, or is it -- do you even morph through a political lens? where does mitt romney play through all of this. >> he can campaign in states not adversely affected by the storm. he can stay in ohio. i don't think there was any downside to spend more time in ohio and put in homilies in the speech how
